Storm Damage at Lake Guntersville Alabama Campground
October 26, 2011 § Leave a comment
We stayed at this campground a few years ago when we did a show in Guntersville. We enjoyed it even though we had to seek shelter in the men’s bath room to wait out a tornado – so we decided to stop over on our way south for a night or two on our way south. We were astounded to find that a majority of the large forest the contains the campground had been destroyed by four tornadoes in one day last April. They lost cabins and a lot of campers as well as damage to the lodge – but no human casualties.
A small portion had been cleared of fallen trees and wind blown debris so that we were able to stay but we decided one night was enough – very sad! The forest was thick with trees and now there are few.
This video does not show the devastation very well but gives an idea.
